FOR villagers who travelled from as far as Cakaudrove and Bua, being part of the FijiFirst party family fun day was an activity they didn't want to miss.

Held at Subrail Park in Labasa the family day was packed with people from all walks of life.

With a live band and different groups entertaining the crowd with items, women sat in stalls selling food and juice using the fun day as another opportunity to support their livelihoods.

Party candidates mingled with the crowd shaking hands with those they met and shared jokes with others.

People cheered as candidates introduced themselves to the crowd.

Mereani Kotobili from Buca in Cakaudrove said she brought her family to Labasa to be part of the event because she wanted them to know more about the political party.

She added that her children had always wanted to meet the party candidates.

Poasa Naibuka, also from Cakaudrove, shared how the government had assisted his farming business.

"It is time for us to wake up and choose the government that will help us with our livelihoods so we can all benefit," he said.

"I came to this fun day because I want to thank the party members for their great help in providing me with seedlings and crop cuttings."

Buses were provided by the party to transport its supporters from rural areas to the fun day venue.
